Juris Prudence

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court discussed severability — whether overturning the individual mandate in the health care reform law would require overturning the entire law.

Amnesia

© Jim Morin The individual mandate was originally a Republican idea, and they introduced two health care bills that included an individual mandate. Romneycare includes it. Ironically, Barack Obama in 2008 was opposed to it. But when Obama changed his mind, the Republicans suddenly became against it. So the Republicans are desperately fighting to repeal […]

Unhealthy Interest

© Kevin Siers Is anyone else worried that after such insane decisions as Citizen’s United, the Supreme Court is going to do something really stupid to health care reform? I may have to move away again after all.

AT&T shooting themselves in the foot

Matthew Spaccarelli was upset about the fact that AT&T guaranteed him “unlimited” bandwidth on his iPhone, but then slowed down (in their terms, throttled) his service. So he sued in small claims court, and won. Score one for the little guy. What happened next is interesting. AT&T said they would appeal, and sent him a […]

All Obama’s Fault

© Matt Davies I’m sure someone would blame Obama for rainy weather if they could.

The New GOP Budget Explained

Paul Ryan explains how his new budget will work for America, returning our country to what it was under the founding fathers: “Under this plan, if you lose your job and have your house foreclosed, the government isn’t going to bail you out any more.” Instead, any American who can no longer compete in the […]

Is Romney the Perfect Candidate for the Republicans?

© Joe Heller It is ironic that Republicans don’t like Mitt Romney for changing his positions, when they do the same thing about candidates trying to find “Anyone but Mitt”. I’m often confused about the whole “flip-flopping” deal. Voters want candidates who respect their wishes. When Romney was running in a pro-choice state, he was […]
